Applied ICT A Level at The Hayfield School

Course description

An A Level in Applied ICT will improve your skills in a variety of industrial software and broaden your knowledge and understanding of the way ICT is used in business.

Course content

Six modules are taught in total: in Year 12 we cover three modules; in Year 13, we study the other three modules to make up the full A Level.


Entry requirements

In Year 12 you will study the way businesses use ICT systems; learn and apply software skills in a business setting; and in addition learn how to use ICT to research and present findings – a process that is useful in many other subjects.

By Year 13, you will have become more independent in your use of ICT and will be able to specialise in areas that will be relevant to your future career or of particular interest to you.


With the exception of one module which is an examination, you will be assessed through coursework portfolios.

Future opportunities

The course provides a basis for progression into further learning in ICT related fields.

Students who have followed this course have gone on to do very specialist ICT degrees such as web design and ethical hacking; others have used their ICT skills in the ‘real world’; many have used their ICT skills to support their chosen degree course.
